For over 40 years, Little People’s Repertory Theatre has provided a unique, low-cost high quality summer musical theatre Main Cast Program for children 8-14. LPRT is the most affordable children’s theater program in Santa Cruz County. We perform and rehearse at Park Hall in Ben Lomond.
Since 1998, LPRT has offered children the unique opportunity to do “non-traditional” theater. We present an original rock musical written for a cast of 70 children. We take a traditional fairytale or folktale and rewrite it with a contemporary twist. We parody classic rock and pop songs and performers. Every child sings, dances and has a spoken part.
In addition to serving 8-14 year-olds, LPRT also serves young children and teens through our Jr. Players Program and our Teen Mentorship Program.
LPRT productions are truly collaborative. We have a strong supportive community with a large involvement of parents, community members and teen alumni cast members who help out with all aspects of putting on a show, from set construction and costuming, to technical direction and videography. A rock band made up of parents and teen alumni accompany the cast at all performances.
